Women of all ages may lack information about the nature of legal agreements concerning marriage, relationships and family matters. When it comes to prenups or postnups, many times, the higher earner, often the man, may initiate a request for a prenuptial agreement. In California anyone signing a prenup or postnup is advised to seek legal counsel. In some situations, these agreements may be contested if disclosure conditions are not met or if there was no advice to seek counsel.
Also while California is a community property state, many women are unclear of their standing under community property law. Money remains a sensitive topic , yet there are gentle ways of asserting one’s need for adequate information without jeopardizing a relationship. The panel will discuss how.
